MetadataShow full item record
AbstractIn a mail survey, we asked Arizona cotton growers which characteristics of a tillage system are important to them. Burial of crop residue, low cost, easy maintenance, reliability, low field work time, and breaking insect life cycles were all rated as important characteristics. Dust control was rated as not important. In rating their perceptions of conventional and alternative tillage systems, cotton farmers indicated that they were not completely satisfied with any of the currently available tillage alternatives.
